Rye, in East Sussex is well worth a visit; here I am just beneath the castle walls. This smart casual outfit is a firm favourite for weekends with the kids. For warmth I add my Cos fine, wool knit underneath the shirt. Search for slim fitting layers that will not disrupt the line of a lighter top or shirt when it’s worn on top. Layers, layers and more layers – it’s the key to this blasted changeable weather we are having. A lightweight jacket is another must, simply whip it off when you need to and chuck it in a bag.
